NHS Welcomes New Inductees

Posted on February 27, 2017 by


On 23 February, the Fleetwood Area High School chapter of National Honor Society held its annual induction ceremony.

Each year, juniors and seniors are honored with induction. Students with a 92% grade average are  invited to apply. They are accepted on criteria including academics, community, volunteering, sports, music, etc., according to the Fleetwood Area High School’s website.

Applications are reviewed by an NHS committee of six teachers at the high school. In addition to the general standards, applicants are chosen based on the four main principles of National Honor Society: scholarship, leadership, service, and character.

Upon being recognized as members, students are required to complete five hours of community/volunteer service and maintain the academic standards that are required for acceptance.

Having National Honor Society on one’s resume is also good to display when applying for colleges and scholarships.

National Honor Society was founded in 1921 in Pittsburgh. The National Honor Society website lists “creating enthusiasm for scholarship, stimulating a desire to render service, promoting leadership, and developing character” as the four main purposes for the organization.

Sam Greiss is the student president of the Fleetwood NHS chapter, Aubree Kilp is the treasurer, and Kyle Keirstead is the secretary.
